    Get ready to rudder, or not.

    Inspired by their best-selling fishing kayaks, the folks over at Jackson Kayak decided to up the ante by creating the Cuda HD Rudder Ready Kayak, which is the newest edition to the Cuda family. This heavy-duty (HD) kayak differentiates itself from the rest of the lot with a longer length and slightly wider size that ultimately ensures increased tracking, speed, and stability. Additionally, the deck staging has been improved, so you're able to fish comfortably and quietly.

    The Cuda HD features a longer and wider hull design for improved tracking and speed, while the full standing pad dampens vibrations as to not scare away the fish and provide a comfortable feel underfoot. The newly redesigned Elite Seat system features a Hi-Low setting, allowing you to get low or elevated while the Therm-a-Rest lumbar pad is fully adjustable and provides a pillow-like and supportive feel. A center and front hatch provide ample storage room and features easy-to-use latches for effortless opening. Not to mention, the Cuda HD is equipped with Line Cutterz, SealLine Seat Pouch, and Platypus Hydration System for maximum adaptability, and the multiple tackle box storage options ensure that you're able to bring all the gear you need—without having to leave any at home.

    Great Product, Awful Shipping

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    This is an outstanding yak. However, for the price and extra $100 for shipping, better protective means should be used beside a plastic clear bag. Although the boat is a sturdy Poly, this thing arrived significantly scratched with minor hull gouges but not damaged enough to go through the return process. Also, carrier, Cevalogistics didn't have the most friendliest of customer service and gives you a 4 hr time of delivery with only half hour notice

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is a great kayak! I have used it on open water and moving rivers. My only complaint is that it is a lot heavier than my Cuda 12. Understand that I knew that it was going to be heavier when I bought it. I love all the great features on this yak. It seems to have just about everything you need when heading out for a day of fishing! It is more stable than my Cuda 12 and paddles just fine. A few items were missing from the accessories upon delivery but they have since sent all but 1 of the items. Backcountry has been helpful and very friendly through out the process.

    Right on arrival this kayak is equipped with everything you need and more. I was blown away. It's super stable for fishing while standing or sitting. If the goodies aren't enough for you there's plenty of neat places to mount more!
